...What the heck ? You have a local library, right? Communicate from there. Use email. Explain over email that you can't use the phone because your mentally-ill mother answers and talks about cats or whatever. That'll get around that problem. Aside from that...move, don't tell her your phone number,...

This might have already been asked, but just HOW do you communicate with eyes? Seriously, it's confusing the heck out of me. Do you watch the eyebrows? The lines near the eyes? Is it the entire facial structure? I can 'read' mouth and whole-face expressions (thick eyebrows are easy), but eyes are ju...

Thank the Gods, the feeling's gone away for a while. You guys are the best, though--I didn't even think of OCD symptoms at first! But now that I think about it, it kind of makes sense; I also tend to arrange silverware 'just so' or spend hours trying to figure out exactly where something tiny should...

Well, I officially haven't a clue what your husband has, but you guys working it out? *does happy dance* Out where I live, this sort of thing happens a lot. They're usually lost causes. This is the most awesome story I've heard. I hope this works out okay for you, and I'm so glad you're starting to ...

I used to do that a lot. Then I grew up and learned how to get purely angry. No stress, no worries. Just anger. Now I stay much more in control, and I make much more effective points.

Though, unfortunately, PMS likes to look at that and say 'wanna bet?'. :/

Furthermore, have they ever thought that they're already putting us through hell by their unending self-righteous judgment of us, and through their attempt to restrict our rights based on their interpretation of the Bible? Shouldn't the fact that we're going to burn in Hell for all eternity be puni...

I've always had the weird urge to aggressively show off around girls and boys, but it didn't solidify until my sexuality did at eleven. I then promptly repressed. I am VERY good at self-hypnosis, and somehow I managed to hypnotize myself to not undo the repression until I 'had another life'. Which o...

I seem to have a converse problem with eye contact. Namely, when I look at others, they get creeped out *amazingly* quickly (2 seconds or less seems typical). I'm not aware of, I dunno, deliberately making googly-eyes at somebody, but that tends to be the sort of reaction I get. I often only notice...

I was going to say that maybe you just have traits they associate with computers, like me calling techno music 'spacy' because I associate it with outer space. (Gotta love having weird neurology. :p) Then I saw that they treat you like you don't have rights or emotions. So the answer is probably tha...

I'd freak out if I messed up socially when I was little. I'd have this voice in my head screaming that I was bad and evil and deserved to die or whatever. But an actual punishment? No, I missed out on that...phew. :p

Its possible you might be suffering from Obsessive compulsive behaviours. Not full OCD neccessarily but some of the symptoms. What you describe is very similar to what a lot of people with Tourettes experience. I get random urges to hurt myself by clawing my eyes, burning myself (luckily that one n...

I'm nineteen and still living at home. My family consists of my dad, who is heavily medicated and acts like a very odd overgrown child (I'm actually beginning to wonder if he has OCD); my two teenaged brothers; my six-year-old sister, who I was the primary caretaker of when she was about two; me; an...

Holy cow. This behavior is completely unacceptable. Think of it this way: What would happen if YOU did this stuff? Unfortunately, there are NTs who behave this way. Why? Who knows. But the problem is that once you're an 'enemy', you will always be an 'enemy'. It's time to leave. Start by...
